WINTER 2017

HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM FRED. WITH BEST WISHES TO ALL FOR A BRILLIANT 2017.

FRED IS DELIGHTED TO ANNOUNCE THAT THE JO HARMAN ALBUM RECORDED IN EARLY 2016 IS FINALLY RELEASED AS OF FEB 3 AND IT IS TRULY WORTH THE WAIT. JO IS AN ARTIST FROM THE UK AND IS A GLORIOUS WRITER AND PERFORMER. OTHER RELEASES FOR FEB. INCLUDE THE EP "BATTLEGROUND", BY SHAI LITTLEJOHN, A WONDERFUL AMERICANA/COUNTRY ARTIST WITH STRONG SOCIAL STATEMENTS AND OUTSTANDING SONGS. ON FEB 10TH, WE SEE THE LONG AWAITED COLLECTOR'S EDITION OF FRED'S PRODUCTION OF KRIS KRISTOFFERSON BACK IN 1996. "THE AUSTIN SESSIONS" IS COMING OUT ON RHINO/WARNERS AND INCLUDES A 8 PAGE BOOKLET WRITTEN BY FRED ABOUT THE MAKING OF THE ALBUM, ALONG WITH NEVER-SEEN-BEFORE PHOTOS AND 2 BONUS CUTS THAT WERE NEVER RELEASED BEFORE. IT IS A SOURCE OF INCREDIBLE PRIDE FOR FRED AND A TRULY HISTORIC ALBUM. IN OCTOBER AND NOVEMBER, FRED BROUGHT LONG-TIME ARTIST AND DEAR FRIEND, THE BRILLIANT AMANDA MCBROOM, TO NASHVILLE TO DO AN ALBUM THAT HAS BEEN A LONG TIME COMING. "VOICES" IS THE 3RD ALBUM THEY HAVE DONE TOGETHER AND IT MAY BE THE MOST IMPORTANT. AMANDA IS MOST FAMOUS FOR WRITING THE ICONIC SONG "THE ROSE", AND ON THE NEW ALBUM THEY HAVE RECORDED IT AS A DUET WITH VINCE GILL. IT IS NOT TO BE MISSED. THE ALBUM IS RELEASED IN MARCH. MORE NEW PROJECTS BEING DONE AT THE MOMENT, INCLUDING TEXAS SINGER-SONGWRITER CARTER BECKWORTH ON THE 2ND ALBUM THEY HAVE DONE TOGETHER. MORE NEWS TO COME!

LET MUSIC KEEP YOU WARM AND DRY IN THESE WINTER MONTHS!
